The operated eye is patched for 2-3 hours after surgery. The patient is instructed to use eye drops after surgery for 3-4 weeks. Mild discomfort, irritation, watering, itching is common after surgery which usually reduces within 2-3 days. The patient is instructed to avoid rubbing or pressing the eye. The patient should also avoid exposure of the operated eye to dirty water, cloth or hands to reduce the risk of infection. Most of the restrictions apply only for a week after which the patient can continue with normal daily routine. There are no dietary restrictions and the patient can continue to perform light household chores or professional work immediately after the surgery.

Established in 2004, the first hospital of its kind in Faridabad, equipped with the best instruments and facilities available at that time. The eye care center is committed to providing patients with the best possible eye care while maintaining the highest levels of honesty and integrity.

The hospital has its own pharmacy and optical counter.

A variety of foldable lenses are available and vary according to the material and the optics. The lenses can be made of either Hydrophobic acrylic, Hydrophilic acrylic or Silicone. There are distinct advantages and disadvantages of each material and the suitability of each type for a patient needs to be discussed with the eye surgeon.

The lenses also vary according to the optics and includes monofocal, monofocal aspheric, toric, and multifocal IOLs

Foldable lenses are made of soft material and can be implanted in the eye through the small incision of phaco surgery. Rigid lenses require larger incision for implantation during surgery and are thus used only during ECCE or ICCE.

The artificial lenses implanted inside the eye during cataract surgery are intended to remain permanently in place and require no maintenance or handling. They are neither felt by the patient nor noticed by others

Intra Ocular lens (IOL) is a tiny transparent convex lens to replace the cloudy cataractous lens in the eye. It is made of different materials like PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate, a harmless plastic substance), Silicon & Acrylic (Hydrophillic & Hydrophobic). Unlike contact lens, an IOL stays permanently in the eye and does not cause irritation. A foldable IOL is inserted into the eye through a device called IOL Injector through a small incision of 2-3 mm dimension.

At Drishti Eye Centre we use the best quality Foldable Imported IOL’s of reputed multinational companies.

Advantages of IOL:-

Since the lens is placed inside the eye, most patients do not need glasses for clear distance vision. But patient has to wear reading glasses for near and intermediate vision tasks.

  • Images are clear and of the same dimension without distortion.

  • Full vision returns quickly.

  • Normal field of vision.
